What is Judith Miller hiding?
    And why are her bosses letting her hide it?

She won’t show her notes to her colleagues at the Times who are reporting on her activities and testimony.

To my eyes, the most explosive revelation in the Van Natta et al. report is that Miller refuses to show her notes to other reporters for her own newspaper. Obviously the management of the Times hasn’t insisted that she do so. From this we learn two things:

1. Miller has something to hide.

2. Keller and Sulzberger are willing to allow her to hide it.
